Jump Start: this is a fun game to test your knowledge and to prepare you for Brotherhood Conversion:
If you have taken your Ordeal before 2011 you are eligible to seal your membership by converting to Brotherhood. The next opportunity to do this is at the Lodge Fellowship. Converting is easy and only requires you to attend a class/discussion on site, write a letter to the secretary (you can have this pre-written before you arrive or write it when you are there) and attend the Brotherhood Ceremony.
Pleas read: The Challenges of Brotherhood Membership, reference page 50 - 69 in the 2008 printing (older printings may have it on a different page) of your OA handbook,. This will give you all the information about Brotherhood Conversions. There is a fun game on the computer you can take as a review: Jump Start found at: http://www.jumpstart.oa-bsa.org/, remember it is your obligation to convert to Brotherhood.
The letter should be addressed Dear Secretary,
it should include:
Explain what you think the Obligation means.
Describe how you have been fulfilling this Obligation in your Troop or team and in your daily life, and how you have used your understanding of the Ordeal to aid in our service.
Describe your specific plans for giving future service in the lodge or chapter program.
